How to Add a Sitemap to Your Blog/Website?

If you are searching an answer of how to add a sitemap to your blog/website, then this post is for you. Here I will talk about how to create a HTML sitemap so don’t confuse it with a XML sitemap. See the difference from this post: What is The Difference Between HTML Sitemap and XML Sitemap?

  • Next follow the instructions in one of the Free sitemap generators to generate a HTML sitemap for your blog/website.
  • Then log in to your blog/website’s dashboard and create a new page for it.
  • Every time when you create a new post you’ll need to update your sitemap. I just simply add my new post to my existing sitemap.

That is it. Some people like to place their sitemap in footer. That is because they believe that search engines will last crawl the sitemap before it exits the blog/website. I don’t know it is true or not but it is up to you to take the action.

Would you like to add a sitemap to your blog/website? Why or why not? Please leave a comment below.
